  1. Beatroute Malt scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Firework! A superb PX cask, meaty, sweet sherry bomb, ticks all the right boxes for me!

  5. NorthCoast500 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very nice drop from the Allt a Bhainne distillery. Hardest part was to pronounce it correctly at the bar, to order. I remember lots of fruits. Not the dark red ones, rather pears and apple with some cherries.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The nose is modest and stays behind a little, in taste it is very (power)ful(l), light red fruits, pleasant whisky overall.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Relatively light nose, only a little alcohol punch, light red fruits, strawberry, raisins.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Red fruits, strawberry, berries. Then suddenly very intense, strong, alcoholic. SOme chocolate too, and honey.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Still pretty strong, red fruits, berries, full taste. Some peach and honey, pretty long finish.

  9. grycha scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: All about the cask but what a cask! Meaty, juicy and fruity PX, Sherry all over, creamy vanilla, orange, bright cherry, very slightly sulphury (in a good way).

    Taste: Soft and light at 62%! Cherry and an explosion of orange, creamy mouthfeel with vanilla.

    with water: A little spicier, a bit more complexity too.

    Finish: Medium length. Soft orange, some juicy/meaty Sherry left over.
    An exclusive for the Speyside Whisky Festival 2018. PX Sherry finish. Very good at only 8 years old.
